  1. Writing to Fat32 volume = 4GB filesize limit

    Writing to NTFS volume = filesize limited only by available free disk space.

    your hard drive may be faulty so i would test it with the drive maker's diagnostic software: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287
  2. Thanks for the response it turned out to be a connection problem after restart it went ok even with 33Gb file
